Automation Workshop features a remote file monitoring module called Amazon S3 Watcher. It scans a folder in AWS S3 bucket for file changes. It does not require AWS Transfer for SFTP service to be enabled in AWS Console, however it is possible to monitor such Amazon Simple Storage Service that has SFTP service enabled using SFTP Watcher.
Amazon S3 Watcher can launch a Task when a file or folder is created, modified, deleted in the remote bucket. It can also watch for number of files in the folder, and look when a file reaches certain size limit. File mask filter allows to monitor for selected file types or files with specific names.
Amazon S3 watcher Trigger is part of Windows Automation solution called Automation Workshop. It allows monitoring AWS S3 on your premises without depending on online services (self-hosted solution). Automation Workshop comes with more than hundred Actions, that can do various tasks on your files, such as, download or upload file, synchronize whole directory trees, compress files, send emails, and much more.
